Avoid pop.co

A while ago, I bought the tickets for Laracon Online. Among the goodies you get is a free .co domain for a year with a domain registrar called pop.co.

There was a special promo link that you have to use to get your free domain, but this link wasn’t communicated clearly enough and I paid for my .co domain.

So I tried to contact them to see if this could be rectified. I didn’t expect a refund, but maybe just extend my domain with an extra year.

No response. Nothing at all from them, for weeks.

Today, I tried to login to webmail on pop.co. Logged in successfully but I keep getting redirected back to the login screen.

And if you check their twitter account, you’ll see that there are no more responses after the goodies where given out when Laracon Online went live.

Something’s fishy.

Transferring out my domain to my current registrar (This is not a sponsored post, lol). WHOIS lookup prishe.com if you want to know who.

This one I’m using now has been reliable, and support promptly responds to my questions.

In summary, fuck pop.co
